Be Converted

Waiting for the bombs to stop

It disturbs our minds

We don’t want to see this cruelty

Though we know the world’s unkind

Displaced people everywhere

Children with no home

Separated parents

Hanging on a phone


Now I read statistics

Is this what’s going on!

Sixty-three thousand reports of rape

In the United Kingdom

Think of those unhappy homes

Think for we do not see

The suffering all around us

Should bring us to the knee


What can we do in the midst of this?

What contribution make?

We cannot change this heartless world

We cannot – that’s our take

Yet we should do what we can do

Pray for everyone

And be the change you want to see

Have mercy Lord Amen
